Faking It by: Elisa Lorello book review
by: Elisa Lorello
2008; 220 pages
I got this book free for my Kindle. Otherwise, I probably wouldn't have read it.
There's nothing special really, but it was an entertaining read. I'm starting to feel a bit like my reading has taken a nose-dive. I may need to invest in some Faulkner or Vonnegut soon.
Faking It is the story of Andrea (Andi) who realizes that she's going through her life and faking nearly the whole thing. Until she meets Devin. Devin is an escort. Andi and Devin exchange "services". Andi teaches Devin to write, and Devin teaches Andi how to be comfortable with herself. They also get more than they bargain for. But, what will become of them as life happens.
It's hard to write a review of a book that wasn't really good, and wasn't really bad either. I did feel a little uncomfortable with it at times, there was some language and sex scenes that I thought could have been left out.
Faking It is a little like a romance, and a little like a chic-lit Jane Austen spin off.
To be honest, it's not a book I'd recommend. Unless, like me, you run across a free copy and find yourself with nothing else to read.
